The business is located in one of the best positions within the township in a relatively new shop that was developed just over four years ago. The location is next door to the Westpac Bank in the central town pedestrian crossing.
Ray White in Whitianga has established itself as one of the market leaders in the area. At present the office controls 80% of the developments in the town and the residential division has a 25% hold of exclusive listings, which is the largest residential controlled agency share in the marketplace.
The sales team comprises seven people, all of whom have established careers in real estate throughout the Whitianga and Coromandel regions. The current listing stock is approximately 60 exclusives with a number of auctions and tenders in current campaigns. The office also has a property management division which is expected to have gross earnings of $70,000. The property management will continue to grow as this has been established from a lower base over the past two year period
Whitianga is fast becoming the hub of the Coromandel Peninsula, with a continued surge in population set to grow with new developments taking shape in the township. The Whitianga Waterways and Hopper Developments expect to continue the canal development to have over 1,800 sections, with canals stretching a total of 7.2ks throughout the area. The developments offer the people of Whitianga a lifestyle that is linked to the Waterways and makes it the ideal holiday or lifestyle destination while only being 2½ hours drive from Auckland.
The Ray White office is for sale as a going concern; with the complete fit-out, the sales and rentals division as well as the stock of Ray White livery. The ideal buyer for the business will have a real estate agents license; will be committed to the sales and property management team; and be able to grow the business by increasing market share and profile within the region.
This sale has come about due to a personal change in circumstances for the owner, who will sell the business on favourable terms.

The office in Mangonui is a small agency business which currently has two good performing salespeople. The premises are available on a longer term lease at a rate of $12,000 per annum plus GST and outgoings. This office is a sales office only and holds 60 controlled listings and has had an average market share of 40% during the past 12 months. It is driven by confidence from the Auckland market and with this returning, it is expected that sales will increase as the area continue to grow in popularity.

The number of sales in the area over the past 12 months was 47.
The value of the businesses is made up in three ways: property management, goodwill and the depreciated schedule of chattels. The Kaitaia business is to be sold with the Mangonui office in place; however Mark Saxton is willing to discuss options.
We see this as an ideal opportunity for a real estate agent to take these businesses to the next level. There is a genuine health reason for the sale of the businesses. The current owner, Mark Saxton, lives in Coopers Beach and would be available to be agent licensee for a maximum of a one year period to assist in the ongoing success of the businesses.
